SSFC will be at the heart of a family fun day in Jarrow on Sunday.

The ‘Champions Funday’ is taking place at Drewetts Park, which sits between Bede’s World and St Paul’s Church off Church Bank, Jarrow, between 11am and 5pm.

The event has been organised between SSFC and club sponsor The Dunes Adventure Island, with a host of activities and entertainment lined up.

SSFC supporters will get the opportunity to have their 2017-18 home kit signed by the players, and see the trophies the Mariners won last season.

There will also be fairground rides, food, music, drinks and football, including a coaching session with SSFC players Barrie Smith and Carl Finnigan.

The fun day will be on between 11am and 5pm, with a DJ to play music throughout the day and plenty more activities to be held, including a beat the goalie competition.

Wristbands, giving children unlimited access to the rides, inflatables and coaching session, are available in advance for £8 from the Dunes Adventure Island and Mariners Park. They’re on sale now, and parents can attend for free.

Should your child wish to take part in the coaching course, there is no extra cost, but please register their names at Mariners Park so the club is aware of the numbers. Places are filling fast, so please don’t delay.

The club’s family fun day – which doubles up as a promotion party – is to take place this Sunday, May 29.

It is being held at Mariners Park, and is for all the family.

There will be a host of attractions, including fairground rides and children’s games.

There will also be the chance to win some amazing prizes, including a brand new Ipad.

Food and drink stalls will also be in place on the bottom pitch at Mariners Park, with deals on all of our products, while there will be live music and children’s characters.

Pre-sale wristbands for all of the rides are now available to buy at a price of £8 each. Those bought on the day will be £10. To book, call 0191 454 7800 or pop into Mariners Park.

For anyone with smaller children, we will have a toddler corner, so they won’t have to miss out on any of the fun.

Unfortunately, the adverse weather over recent days has meant the club has had to postpone Sunday’s promotion party / family fun day until Sunday, May 29, which is the next Bank Holiday weekend.

The decision was made because we were unable to get the activities and rides we wanted due to the weather, so to ensure everyone has a great day, we have pushed it back to late next month.

All pre-sale wristbands will still be valid on the new date. Sorry for the inconvenience.

If anyone is unable to make the new date and has already bought a wristband, please call the club on 0191 454 7800 or pop into Mariners Park to arrange a refund. The club would require the ticket back intact.

We hope that people can understand the situation, and look forward to hopefully seeing you at Mariners Park on the rearranged date for what should be a great day.
